Good morning!  Heading out for some breakfast later, then picking up the motorcycle from the shop.  Going to be a chilly ride.

Morning All. There's a train show today in Wakefield Mass that I haven't been to in about ten years but I might find time to check it out. Here's a George Hill photo taken in June of 1950 in White River Jct. Vermont

Dave,
    Are you talking about the retaining wall? For that I made some blocks from plaster and stacked them.  It was way before I had any molds from Sterling- which in my opinion have the absolutely best rock and stone wall molds on the market...
    The walls in the Smidtchen's kit are made from resin.... I remember painting the stones different colors, hitting it with AI, then spray of Dullcoat.

Morning everyone

A sunny/40 in South Jersey.

A walk-on the beach later this morning.  Yard work.  Then some time at the bench.

Everyone have a great day!! :)

Good Morning All,

Another hot day today but by Thursday it's supposed to cool down to 70's during the day ;D. Grand kids are here today so no modeling. 

I hope everyone has a great day.

Good day. I'm on my way to Suncoast Finescale..............
Finally some cooler weather in Florida.
Three people murdered in Seminole Heights area. No suspects. All near a bus station.
Very sad.
